Cargill provides the sophisticated chemical analysis needed for critical insight into the chemical structure and composition of products you need when developing a new product, improving an existing product or optimizing a process.
Our depth of expertise in analytical chemistry can help you answer a broad range of questions, such as:
- Composition promise and regulatory compliance. Do your products meet their composition promise – and are they in regulatory compliance? Do they meet the health claims associated with certain ingredients?
- Process controls. Are your process controls optimal for delivering your targeted product?
- Safety. How can you ensure that your product is safe? Does it contain substances that could contribute to adulteration or food safety issues?
- Composition and competition. What changes in composition would provide the solution that could jettison your product beyond the competition?
- Food Forensics. Unexpected process or product problem? Need a scientific detective to solve the problem?
